When the element mercury accumulates to a high concentration in the body, it can lead to a variety of acute and chronic medical problems, including organ damage and compromise of major bodily systems. Dentists who focus on safe amalgam removal must receive specialized training in the practice.
In addition to its widespread use in dental amalgam, mercury gets into our surroundings from industrial processes and broken fluorescent tubes and even from natural phenomena, such as volcanic eruptions.
The symptoms of mercury toxicity are manifold; poisoning from the element can affect every part of the body, including the neurological, central nervous, gastrointestinal, immune, neuromuscular, and cardiovascular systems, as well as major organs, such as the brain, liver, and kidneys. Symptoms are diverse, ranging from headache and fatigue to gastrointestinal disorders and from muscle and bone afflictions to oral health and gum problems.
Detoxification works by preventing a recognized damaging substance from causing harm to the body. The liver is the main line of defense here, though other organs, such as the lungs and kidneys, play a role. Enzymes attach to toxins both chemically and electrostatically, preparing them for elimination from the body.
A patient coming to The Center for Systemic Dentistry will be the recipient of a state-of-the-art protocol for safe removal of mercury amalgam. A comprehensive initial dental exam and systemic assessment determine the extent of mercury damage. This exam and an evaluation of the patient’s overall health help the doctor to determine if the patient is at risk of systemic reaction in the immune, detoxification, or elimination systems.
